Learned about this lib on https://perf.rocks. Until we have something like the BTC License I don't see how a FOSS offering could do better than this puppy, which is using FOSS licenses anyway but, as per Holly, somehow hamstringed.

Would like that to take the place of JPG and PNG as a new standard.
This would be great! Smaller sizes, most devices will be able to hardware decode this and it's developed independent and with LGPL license.
